Award-winning Indian Cuisine

Anand George’s renowned twists on the unique foods of India have won Purple Poppadom many awards. Join us to celebrate Chef’s signature cuisine.

The Great Tastes of India

Originally from Kerala, South India, Chef Anand George opened Purple Poppadom ten years ago, having brought his innovative new style of Indian cuisine to Cardiff in 2008.

We love combining culinary heritage dishes from Kerala in the south to Kashmir in the north, and all points in between with our very special interpretations. Enjoy!
